    Saranda - It's great you did showjumping. Whenever I've competed I've always sort of counted a clear round as a sort of "win" even if wasn't fast enough to win overall. So is this training you do a job or are you doing it for fun?

    Yooper - What sort of riding are you doing?

    CountryRyder - She is lovely! Around here you never see Saddlebreds, are they a popular breed over there?

    There are not too many here in Alberta,but they are becoming more and more popular and in demand in certain areas as people discover their versatility and that they cross very well with certain other breeds.I've always loved them and it's been a dream of mine to someday own one,now I have two! :)

    Saskia - yeah, it was our very first competition, so I really didn't want to push him in any way, so we stuck to a slower pace and just enjoyed ourselves. He behaved wonderfully and gave me no spooks or refusals.

    As for the training - it's just something I do for fun and experience, as IMO I still need to learn a lot before I can start doing it as a job.

    I've stalked this thread for a while but I'm glad it's back up!

    Countryryder she is absolutely gorgeous!! I bet you're going to have a ton of fun with her! I have a soft spot for Saddlebreds. My boy is just part, but I think they are so smart!

    Details on the doggy adoption please!

    We are moving Hunny to a new stable at the beginning of November. My friend that owns the area that she is at now is moving down to Kentucky and we want her closer so I can ride now that I'm no longer pregnant. I'm excited to really start working with her and riding again. I miss it a lot. It looks like an excellent stable and comes recommended by many people. They also have mounted shooting practice and competitions out there so maybe Hunny and I will get a new hobby...

    Awesome! Good luck at the New place :)

    Hunter was a stray and is about 1.5yrs. He was an intact male when caught by animal control. He was going to be euthanized. Luckily a gsd rescue took him in. He is very playful and sweet, without a mean bone in his body.

    He is probably a mix, he had white paws and a white end on his tail and a white belly. People always ask if he'd part wolf or coyote.

    Gypsy, great you've got a new dog! I love dogs, I keep seeing puppies or dogs for free around and I constantly have to practice my self control.

    Cowgirl, mounted shooting would be a cool thing to try!

    So I've had my new horse for just over a week now and I still can't pick a name. I have no idea what to do, it's going to turn out like the other horse I bought years ago and never named, and now can never talk about her because I don't have a name to refer to.

    His previous name was "Buddy" but it makes me feel all blokey saying it. Now my flatmate is calling him Humphrey which I hate even more! He's just doing it to annoy me so I have to pick something soon. Something that's not too common but isn't weird. I was thinking about Tamba (maybe Tambourine as a full name) or Caspar maybe, Astro? Any ideas? I have no idea.
